I’m a Christian, home-schooling, home-churching, Disciple – Training Mamma of six (so far)! In 2007 we embraced a new standard of quality in our food choices. We began to do research and learn what it meant to be ‘organic’ and why it was a better choice. After giving a two month commitment to organic food we discovered within weeks dramatic changes in or energy levels, moods and overall satisfaction after eating a meal. Over time we proved to be sick much less often and to better manage symptoms on the rare occasion we did catch a cold or whatever. The experiment proved itself quickly and we haven’t looked back since. That’s not to say we don’t have times where circumstances demand a quick stop at a fast food place b/c everyone is hungry and there are no other options. You do what you gotta do! It’s about learning to make the best choices you can as often as you can. Along the way I found God, again, in this simplistic approach to nutrition. He showed himself to me through organic philosophies, through home schooling and getting to know my children so personally and through my grief journey after the drowning death of my five year old son on July 4, 2009 by remembering that God is not the inspiration of death or accidents and by allowing Him to be my strength when I had none to turn a horrible situation into a garden of life. We all have a choice in the emotions, thoughts, ideas and philosophies we embrace. You don’t have MUCH of a choice in what your circumstances are. You can chose to embrace the negative, defeated and victimized ideas as they dance through your head …. or you can sweep them away and embrace the ideas that allow you to achieve joy, victory and empowerment.
I choose to believe that I am a Child of God. I hold the thoughts, feelings and purposes of HIS heart. HE is my creator and HE knows the plan that is best for my life. Do I believe HE holds the best plan for EVERYONE’S life? Yes I do; but I don’t believe that a person who disagrees with my belief is inferior or even wrong. It is only different. I celebrate differences and I hope you do to.
God Bless You!
